One important point that Bacon makes is that “The Following” will have a time jump of many months in between Season 1 and Season 2. As a result, all of the surviving characters will be at a very different point in their lives from where we last saw them, “You’ll see Ryan in a better place in his life,” Bacon says of his character, Ryan Hardy.
Other things learned from the video:
- Although Ryan will have moved past the whole Joe Carroll situation when the season begins, nothing is really over there.
- Ryan Hardy will be teaching criminology in Season 2. The parallels with Carroll’s former career are not lost on Kevin Bacon.
- A new character — Ryan’s niece — will be introduced in Season 2
